    Hi. I live in Illinois and I am trying to call Palestine. The number given to me had a area code of 052 and when I dial the number without the zero,just 011 972 52 and the seven digit number, I get a voice that says "the number that you have called is not available. Please try again later." I did that a couple of times, but I still get the same message. What should I do? Please respond ASAP. Thank you, Rana

    Hi Rana,

    Try using 970 instead of 972 to see if it works (Palestine's country code is 970, although many areas still use Israel's country code 972).

    If you still can't connect try using another line to dial this call.

    What does it mean when the voice says "the number that you have called is not available"? Would calling that cellular number make a difference if the phone was being charged or even dead? Please answer ASAP. Thank you,Rana

    Oh. I am truely sorry yet again. I was wondering why I kept losing minutes on the phone card? Initially,I started off with six hours, then I went down to five hours, then fifty eight minutes, and now, as far I know, I only have forty six minutes left on the phone card. I kept calling the cell phone number back, in different ways, but I still don't understand how I lost so many minutes. The card that I bought cost five dollars, last I checked, the phone card said that I have four dollars and forty two cents on the card. Please help and respond ASAP. -Rana

    Rana,
    It likely means that the phone is either turned off or in a non coverage area. Sorry for not paying enough attention when reading your first post. If you want, I can try dialing this number for you just to see if I get the same "number is not available message" (if you want to do this send me the number using the contact button at the top right).

    Regarding the phone card. I really can't tell, but some cards charge before the call is connected.

    Thank you, but it all worked out. I called the number again and I was able to get a hold of the person I was trying to call. It turns out that the cell phone was in fact dead and needed to be charged. Thank you for all of your help. I hope that I wasn't a bother. Unfortunately, my phone card has been used up of its minutes. It was upsetting. Do you have any recommendations for a phone card? The one that I bought was a Chicago STI card. Please respond ASAP. -Rana
